Gift Boxes is an original PlanetJune Accessories crochet pattern by June Gilbank.

3 sizes of pretty nesting boxes with matching lids are perfect to use as gift boxes at Christmas and throughout the year. They also make stylish decorative boxes for organising and displaying small trinkets.

This pattern is worked in the round (amigurumi-style, in a spiral with no joining or turning) and uses an innovative technique to create real square corners with no sewing required!

Size: The pattern includes boxes with matching lids in three sizes:
Small: approx 2.5” / 6cm width
Medium: approx 3.5” / 8.5cm width
Large: approx 4.5” / 11cm width

Difficulty: easy/intermediate

Yarn: worsted weight yarn
Sample boxes used Bernat Satin yarns because I like the sheen and the beautiful colours, but a harder, more robust yarn (e.g. cotton), would create stiffer, more rigid boxes.

Hook: D US/3.25mm or E US/3.5mm crochet hook (use the smallest hook you can comfortably manage with the yarn you choose)

Details: Pattern is 10 pages long and includes full written instructions including a clear explanation of the new crochet stitches. I also provide a complete step-by-step photo tutorial at the end of the pattern (you can save ink by omitting the 3 tutorial pages when you print the pattern, if you prefer).

Save money: Take advantage of the savings when you buy any three PlanetJune Accessories patterns of your choice as a custom set!
